Norwich Devils 30-07 Bournemouth BobcatsNorwich Devils 30-07 Bournemouth BobcatsThere were no game pausing injuries in the first half of Norwich Devils 30-07 Bournemouth Bobcats Sunday but in the third quarter the Bobcats' QB left injured not to return and the roster we had did not show any backup QBs.  Lots of forward passing and we particularly enjoyed Devil London Burrell's leaping td reception right at the back of the end zone.  The Devils now advance to play the Hertfordshire Cheetahs away next Sunday.

Waveney Wolves 20-38 London SmokeSaturday in Lowestoft on a near Spring day there was a five team flag football league meeting hosted by the Waveney Wolves.  There was no doubting the visiting teams commitment as many had substantial journeys.  We particularly enjoyed at least one game starting with paper/knife/stone rather than a coin toss.  Like moto enduros we're still a little vague about some rules but were very impressed by the wide range of people playing.
